9:14 am
how do we keep it? >> one of the first things, instead of just talking about it because a lot of times you like to give it lip service. is really writing it down. memorializing it. making a contract with yourself that you're going to do this and then don't just keep it to yourself but put it out there to everybody else. puts a little bit of pressure on you. but then you really do have to follow it up. you really do have an audience. the other part is they will be supportive or you may find other people that have the same goals and do them together. the last thing follow a plan, a step by step plan. it's like a road map. if we can use gps, for heaven's sake, we can use that road map to losing the pounds or stop smoking or whatever your resolution happens to be. >> or quitting smoking, lose seg weight, i know these are important goals, things to work toward. what are other resolutions you might suggest that we should think about and feel better about ourselves in. >> i think putting challenges for ourselves, because generally

one is toeing my line. time will tell. >> you're also saying the lowest price houses in 2010 -- the prices are going to start to go up? >> absolutely. this is based on fact already. they're already going up because the cheapest houses have the most people that could afford them. those are the first to go off the shelf. you're also going to see in the next year great deals on the higher priced homes. there's a lot of high priced inventory just sitting because wealthier people don't have to sound. they have deep pockets. they're waiting it out. they're tired of waiting. those are where you get the best deals. >> if you've got the cash or the lending power, the borrowing power, you may get a better deal on the higher if you think about trading up? >> this is an ideal market if you're thinking at all about trading up. first of all, you get help from uncle sam, cash to the tune of 6,000. even if you take a hit on the old house you are ahead on the

9:40 am
seller, it's really important to price the house correctly. be realistic. >> absolutely. the wrong thing you do as a seller is to overprice a house and then think you can incrementally reduce the price inch by inch. it becomes shop worn in the end and you get much less for your house. coming out with the right price is key in this market. >> then make sure your home is the best in class. does that mean making the right repairs on the house? >> you're right. the right repairs and not the expensive repairs are key right now. if you can only spend a couple of weekends going to open houses and seeing the other homes that are going to compete with yours, you'll get a harvard mba on what to do and what not to do if you open your eyes and see what competitors are doing. >> also get your home inspected if you're selling and do it before you list the house. >> i know it sounds backwards but most inspect their homes before moving. it costs $500. if you call your old inspector, he'll usually do it as a courtesy. if you know what's wrong with your house, don't let the buyers
